    2013 a4 broke down on highway wtf...

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    2013 a4 apr stage 1 e85/91 octane k&n cold air intake 58k miles. Today i was driving on innerstate and i started 5o hear a VERY loud ticking noise that seemed to be coming from the engine. The ticking would come and go depending on throttle input. I pulled over and the ticking noise stopped. Revved the engine in park on the side of the road and there was no ticking. Starting driving and at first there was no ticking and then BAM the ticking came back and check engine started flashing and EPC light came on. Weird thing is there was no noticeable loss in power. Had the car towed to the audi dealership and im frantically waiting for a response. Any ideas? I have e85 in the car right now and the car did take a couple seconds to turn over when i started it up please help

    The EXACT same thing happened to me a few days ago. Having my injectors replaced at an Indy Shop. $890 for all.

    Damn that's expensive. The parts are $300 total. Is partial engine disassembly required to replace, costing $500+ in labor?

    Did they at least ask you if you wanted Vaseline before you bent over?

    Sorry to hear about your troubles. Had the ole injector failure years ago on a 2010. Ridiculous.

    nowhere

    Did they give you a print out of the diagnostic report? Would be nice to show the Ziner community for reference. Tough break costing so much.

    You posted e85. Is your A4 flexfuel, cpma motor or is strictly the tune?
